Uh oh, Devan Dubnyk (lower-body injury) won’t return tonight


The Minnesota Wild have shown a remarkable resiliency in the face of goalie injuries during the last few years, but that doesn’t mean they want to have to do it all the time.

It’s a worry that the cycle will start once again, as Devan Dubnyk left Saturday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche and didn’t return during Minnesota’s eventual 3-0 victory.

One could point to odd and uncomfortable timing, as apparently Dubnyk was just discussing the insurance policy provided by Niklas Backstrom.

It’s not quite be careful what you wish for material, but …

Update: The early word is optimistic.
